Alexander-Arnold: My Other Favourite Club Is Barca

Despite his massive involvement in knocking FC Barcelona out of last season's UEFA Champions League, Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold has admitted he sees the Spanish giants as his second team.

Messi Offered Record Salary?

Speaking in a recent interview, the 21-year-old sensation insisted that, while he has never thought of leaving the Reds, he does see the Blaugrana as a club with similar values to his.

"It's not something I've ever thought about. I've always loved Liverpool," he told GQ magazine.

"I've always supported them. I've always played for them. So, yeah, still now, I wouldn't sit there in my room and daydream about playing somewhere else.

"I'd say my favourite other team would be Barca. I feel as though they've got kind of the same values and beliefs as Liverpool.

"(In Liverpool,) everyone's got the same beliefs, the same drive to succeed, the same hard-work ethic, the tenacity.

"The passion in what they believe in is a massive thing in this city."

It was Alexander-Arnold's quickly taken corner that set up Divock Origi's second goal, and the Reds' vital fourth, in Liverpool's 4-0 thrashing of the Catalans in the second leg of their semi-final tie in last season's UEFA Champions League.
